ESXi: vmware datarecovery logon (vcenter) logs on with ad user
Posted on 2013-01-16
I installed datarecovery ovf in my esxi vcenter 5.1.
When I install the plugin and then connect in vcenter, vcenter pops up a login (mydomain\acccount). Of course this datarecovery appliance has no notice of this domain account, I should/want to connect with the root user but it does not allow me.
Note: what't the latest backup of vmware appliance (saw appliances downloadable with 0,5, 1 or 1,5 TB storage but I want to keep the vm's on a CIFS-share!), what are (dis)advantages & how easy/difficult it is to implement?
